Robertson reaches dream of serving his country


Daily News Editor

Richard “Alan” Robertson, 24, of Welsh always dreamed of serving in the military, just like his father and his father’s father before him.

Robertson’s dad, James “Stu” Robertson, flew F-18s for the Marines in the Gulf War. His grandfather, Jack Robertson, was a reserve pilot for the United States Marines.

When Alan Robertson graduated from Virginia Wesleyan College in 2011 with a double major in criminal justice and sociology, he decided to start the process of following in his dad’s and granddad’s footsteps, knowing those shoes are some big ones to fill.
